Each year, one in three adults age 65 and older suffers a fall, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At the Y, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of people of all ages. We do this by offering programs that promote health and fitness and reduce the risk for disease and injuries.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an older adult in the U.S. is treated in the ER for a fall-related injury every 14 seconds and dies from a fall-related injury every 29 minutes. September 23rd is National Falls Prevention Awareness Day and the YMCA continues to take a stand to educate older adults, caregivers, family members and our community members on how to prevent falls among older adults.
